Building inspection a lucrative field

Construction emergencies like the two Manhattan crane collapses had building inspectors working so many hours this year that two of them more than doubled their salaries with overtime.

Overtime windfalls in crane probes

It's the first time in years that the annual list, for overtime payments in the fiscal year that ended June 30, has buildings inspectors near the top.

Also near the top of the list from the city's payroll department are Fire Department electricians who, for two years, have been been upgrading the citywide alarm system used to dispatch crews in emergencies - and have been bringing home big checks to show for it.

It's not like these guys are home doing nothing, they earn it. They know everyone is watching them and the provide a necessary service to the city while sacrificing their social lives and family time to their job.
